Today, 31 countries are using nuclear power. There are 435 reactors operating worldwide, including 58 in France, and 174 new reactors are expected to emerge by 2030, 72 of them now under construction1. And while a nuclear reactor entails an investment of between €6 and 10 billion, engineering typically amounts to 25% of this figure. With a presence in 20 countries, a co-chair of the CSFN export working group and a founding member of the AIFEN (French Association of Nuclear Export Manufacturers), Assystem is an active partner to the French nuclear team on an international scale. It is also positioned internationally with first-accession countries to assist them in identifying, designing and implementing their nuclear programmes through its n.triple.a (Nuclear Atkins Assystem Alliance) joint venture. To date, the Group has participated in the construction of nuclear projects in over 10 countries around the world, covering the entire life cycle of the plants.
For over 45 years, Assystem has been the preferred engineering partner for advanced large-scale and research projects in nuclear power. Designing and operating a nuclear project involves more than controlling the processes on the basis of an experienced skill set and a strong safety culture. Assystem’s 2,500 nuclear experts also act throughout the management of the project, from the very start of the programme, with estimation studies and investment optimisation, through the design and coordination stages to the production, construction, commissioning, maintenance and decommissioning of plants.
